Last week, fans that pre-ordered the revamped Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 got exclusive access to a short demo of the forthcoming game. One fan, however, decided to look around the demo’s source code and found evidence that Jack Black makes a cameo in the reboot.
According to the post that was shared on Reddit, Black portrays the classic villain Officer Dick in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2.
Since the announcement of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2, Black has been included in some of the promotions surrounding the game. Back in May, Black and Tony Hawk offered the first look at the reboot when they released a hilarious video of them playing it.
Now, it looks like Black may actually be making a cameo in the new game. One player got their hands on the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 demo and decided to look around its source code. They ended up coming across an image of Black dressed as Officer Dick, hinting that the actor is included in the game.
Officier Dick has been a staple in the Pro Skater franchise for years. In the first four games, Officer Dick appears as a bonus character and loiters around skaters and stops them from skating. His actions make him one of the most annoying characters in the entire Pro Skater game series.
Hawk, Black and Activision have not confirmed Black’s cameo in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2. So, we may just have to wait for the game’s release on Sept. 4 to see if the actor does actually make an appearance.
Various details regarding Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 have been shared over the past few months. Last week, Hawk revealed that one classic skate trick is getting renamed in the reboot. As well, we also learned that over 30 new songs are included in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2. Machine Gun Kelly, FIDLAR, Less Than Jake, Goldfinger and Sublime are among those featured on the soundtrack.
Goldfinger’s “Superman” inspired the title for the new Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 documentary. Pretending I’m A Superman offers a look into how the franchise’s legacy got its start. The documentary arrives on digital streaming services Aug. 18.
Along with the revamped game, the full roster of pro skaters players will be able to choose from was recently released. From the legendary skaters to new pro skaters, there is now a diverse selection of skaters to play. The new lineup is in efforts to make the game more inclusive and representative of the skating world today.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 arrives Sept. 4. For those that pre-order the game, you’ll get access to an exclusive demo of the revamped game starting Friday, Aug. 14.
